What are some things you cut back on to save money when it's tight? I'm thankfully living with my parents while I look for work (interview on Tuesday!) so other than DDs life insurance bill, I don't have any other bills to worry about thankfully. Even so, I still struggle with money because I have no job. I don't get much in child support, so since DDs birth about a year ago, I've cut back on things.
Instead of $10 hair products, I buy my hair stuff at Dollar Tree. Just basic shampoo, conditioner, and hairspray.
Ive always loved thrift stores, but now nearly everything I wear is from a thrift shop.
I've stopped getting haircuts unless it's a treat from my mom. $8 is a lot when your baby needs formula!
No more pedicures =[
No more facials
No more Starbucks trips
As you can see, what I've cut back on/cut out were more luxury things that I enjoyed. I still endulge if I have a little extra cash on a small coffee from Starbucks, but other than that, I don't go anymore. What have you cut back on in tough times? Was the cut back easy to adjust to or difficult?
